Each week, CK Science is providing a snapshot of the Analytical Chemistry jobs market. Over time, we aim to give you a picture of how it changes and evolves, and most importantly, how this may impact on you depending on overall demand and seasonal changes. So whether you are an Analyst looking for a new science job or an employer seeking new Chemist to join your team, we hope that this market snapshot helps you with your decision making.
Our tracking is based on each week screening some of the UKs leading vacancy boards for how many Analytical Chemistry jobs have been advertised within the previous week.
This summary was completed on Monday 15th February and relates to adverts posted for Analytical Chemists on:
- New Scientist
- CV Library
- Willey job network
- Access Science jobs.
Our results showed that from these job boards a total of 598 Analytical Chemistry vacancies were published last week, with:
- 497 permanent roles
- 101 temporary or contract roles
The pattern of fluctuating numbers every week has continued, with one week of high numbers, followed by a week of decline. This decline could be compounded by school holidays, and if that is the case we should anticipate a further week of decline before job volumes lift.
